Hu calls for mutual trust across the Straits
Updated: 2005-05-12 22:36

The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee General Secretary Hu Jintao set forth four viewpoints on improving and developing cross-Straits relations under the current circumstances during talks with the visiting Chairman James CY Soong of the People First Party (PFP) from Taiwan in Beijing on Thursday.

Hu urged both sides across the Taiwan Straits to stick to the " 1992 Consensus" highlighting the one-China principle and establish a political basis for the peaceful and stable development of the cross-Straits ties.

In order to shape the peaceful and stable cross-Straits relations, it is a must to build the basic political mutual-trust to serve as the common political basis for both sides of the Straits, according to Hu.

To be specific, the political basis refers to adhering to the one-China principle and insisting that China and the Chinese nation should never be split. Once the basis is constructed, any issue concerning the Chinese people on both sides of the Straits can be discussed and there should be no problem that can not be solved, said Hu.

However, consultation will be beyond reach if any attempts at " Taiwan independence" were made. It is because the Taiwan authorities refuse to accept the one-China principle and acknowledge the "1992 Consensus" that cross-Straits dialogue and negotiations have not been resumed to date.

The CPC leader also said the mainland side welcomes the Taiwan authorities to work toward acknowledging the one-China principle.

He pledged that cross-Straits dialogue and talks would be reopened immediately and any issue can be discussed if the Taiwan authorities accept the one-China principle and acknowledge the " 1992 Consensus".
